Jamie Oliver loves food so much he started a global initiative to share his passion for food education with others around the world! The third annual 'New Canaan Food Revolution', in (New Canaan) Connecticut, part of Oliver's program, brought families together to try different foods from local restaurants and food vendors to open their culinary horizons! The event has grown to become a local family favorite.

The Bravery Passport, which was designed to encourage children of all ages to visit local eateries and sample small bites, breaks down barriers about unfamiliar foods. This event hopes to open kids up to new HEALTHY possibilities! This year, the event was hosted by Food Network star and local celebrity Chef Plum. There was also performances by Dre Towey, Mind The Gap and the New England Academy of Dance to make it a well-rounded, fun event for all!
